This is the Bloc Outdoor Newsletter which is written monthly by Peter Raffin. I am available to be contacted on  for any further information written on the topics below.


August saw the launch of a number of new products to the Bloc Outdoor existing ranges. An introduction of two new Dining Chairs with Arms was made to the existing Sand castle and Nautical Ranges. The two new chairs are both solid and clean lined and are slightly bigger than your average carver chair and therefore offers more comfort.  The Double Lounger has been introduced as part of a brand new range called the Serengeti. This beautifully simple design has matching backrests which have three individual height adjustable settings. There is also a hole drilled in the center of the lounger for a parasol to be placed.


Bloc Outdoor has been involved in a number of hospitality projects within the last couple of months and here are two of our latest projects.

The Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel,  Parternoster, Western Cape

Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel, immersed in a feeling of tranquility. Expect spectacular nature, long sandy beaches, a vibrant marine life, magical rock formations and unforgettable views of sky, sand and sea. Bloc Outdoor was chosen as the Outdoor Furniture supplier for this idyllic destination. The Nautical chairs and Barcelona tables were chosen by David Strauss for this beautiful setting.


The Kapama Game Reserve, Kruger Park  

Kapama Southern Camp is the proud new addition to the Kapama Game Reserve family and is situated on the southern most section of the Kapama Private Game Reserve. Bloc Outdoor was approached  by Gert Gertsen to offer outdoor furniture for this tranquil setting. The Coral Lounger and side table were the perfect additions to finish off the beautifully decked pool area. The Kapama Southern Camp offers Luxury 5-star accommodation, warm hospitality and friendly service in a tranquil setting which will satisfy even the most discerning nature lovers’ taste…


Bloc Outdoor is committed to designing and manufacturing Outdoor Furniture in South Africa. As the ranges of our furniture have grown considerably since we began in 2011, it was decided to create our first Outdoor brochure. Our Lifestyle photoshoot was shot at Two views on Prima Road in Camps Bay, Cape Town. Jaco Wolmarans was there to shoot the photos and Kundra Bowley to help with the visual display. The Stills shots were shot at our showroom in Woodstock with the help of Jaco Wolmarans, once again. The 2012/2013 brochure is being designed by a design company in London, UK and promises to be a beautifully compiled aspirational brochure for our customers to peruse. The Brochure will be available from October 2012. Here are some of the Lifestyle photos taken at Two Views in Camps Bay.
